As you can expect, a great deal of outrage has been generated by this. In fairness to those individuals who posted it, it should be noted that this post is widely sourced from a variety of conservative "news" sites.
A couple minutes of Google checking uncovered the facts. I responded to the post:
This would be truly awful if it were true. Thankfully, it isn't.
1. The complaint was filed by Sikhs, not by Muslims.
2. Long-standing Illinois law, not Sharia law, was the basis of the complaint.
3. One of the foundations of the Sikh religion is tolerance.
Radical fundamentalist extremism had nothing to do with this issue.
4. The face must be exposed on any photo ID under Illinois law. A Muslim woman is permitted to wear a head covering for her photograph, but not a face covering.
Please check things out before posting. Don't be gullible. The more awful, terrible and shocking something sounds, the less likely it is to be true. And I can't help but wonder before I end this brief post, who's the fundamentalist extremist bigot?
